One of the greatest car news of 2010 should be this, the return of the Lotus Espirit!
And would you look at it. It is classically beautiful and has all the ingredients to be called a full on supercar.
And that amazing new look is backed by an equally amazing new engine! a five liter V8 with output of 620 hp and a hybrid system with KERS available as option. It really offers the best of both worlds. Pricewise though, it will more affordable than almost all of its rivals that offer the same great design and power.
